Memory, time travel, and day-dreaming

memory is the big theme that shapes the entire movie “La Jetee”. a lot of this memory is linked to the role of the gaze (memory is blurry and made of fragments. the movie is made of photograms as well).

memory is linked with time, because it evokes a past and re-interprets the future. the protagonist travels back in time led by an obsessive image.

however, is this image really part of his past? a lot of our memories are not coming from events we saw happening but from events we heard haad happened or events we imagined happening. what is, then, day-dreaming and what is really time-travel? what is real and what is not? the two things do merge at some point.
